We believe that our District’s Vision is incongruent with, and reaches far beyond, the current Ohio Report Card system that is meant to communicate “progress” to communities.  Rather than relying on community outsiders to dictate the things that we value, our school board, teachers, administrators, parents and community members chose a path less traveled and have begun to reframe accountability as demonstrated by our Portrait of an Olmsted Graduate as well as our locally established district and building scorecards.  We believe that we are first and foremost accountable to our community.


Our district has taken on the accountability challenges that a public school district like ours faces as a result of having to operate within the 20th century accountability model that we’re forced into, and the 21st century world that our students are living in.



Olmsted Falls City Schools – we are different, on purpose.
